I always like to begin my weather reports with a look back at the previous month. December 2010 weather in Ocala was the coldest December on record, breaking the previous record that dated way back to 1917. If you read my December weather report you’ll see a link predicting a warmer and dryer than normal winter. Well I guess that report was about as accurate as the hurricane predictions. One thing that was correct was that it has been extremely dry here in Ocala. Since October we’ve only had a little over 2 inches of rain. The temperatures did get closer to normal from Christmas through New Years, back to the low 70’s.
January is traditionally our coldest month with a high of 70 and a low of 46. After December 2010 that will seem warm.
